“I have known and worked with Jonathan Stein for over 5 years and he has always been fun and professional on and off court. He takes care of the individual needs of each student accordingly while making you feel comfortable playing.”
“Lino is one of the best pros I have ever had! He has great drills that do the teaching and I came back to Cabo early so I could take more lessons, I wish he lived in LA!”
“Tennis was the highlight at Montage thanks to your pros Lino and Fernando. Not only were they outstanding coaches, but they couldn’t have been nicer or more genuine. Reed and I had a lot of fun playing with them, and by the end of the week, the improvement in Reed’s game was definitely noticeable.”
“Hats off to the staff, especially Jonathan Stein the great tennis coach who was the main reasons we returned. He is a great teacher with a great attitude and we really enjoyed all our tennis activities from the lessons to the arranged play with others he helped set up”.
